* KarmaHoudini: Preston misused the blank check Quigley gave him, spent all of the money Quigley had stolen in a week, and possibly forged the signature for the castle deed. In the end Quigley returns to jail on his own charges, but also gets any of Preston's possible crimes pinned to him.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Despite treating him poorly, Preston's father's assessment of his son turns out to be correct. Preston gets a million dollars and fritters it away on junk food, a castle, and amusement rides for his backyard, showing no sense of responsibility or altruism with his fortune. That being said, his father certainly didn't help him ''learn'' responsibility. A kid who's only given a pittance to spend at a carnival is going to have trouble realizing just how fast you can blow large amounts of money.
** Quite simply, Preston acted like he'd won the lottery, having no knowledge how handle large sums of money--something he'd never had a point.

The story begins when bank robber Carl Quigley escapes from jail. Soon after his prison break, Quigley enters a warehouse and recovers $1,000,000 he had hidden there sometime before his arrest. After that introduction the plot switches to Preston Waters, a 12 year old boy tormented by his brothers and ignored by his hyper capitalist dad. He goes to a bank to open an account, but gets laughed out, while at the same time Quigley is exchanging the bills through a corrupt bank employee using checks. After the meeting, Quigley runs over Preston's bicycle while he was riding it in the bank's parking lot.
